with Whonix 8 out the door, I have a feature request/suggestion for Whonix 9. That is: An easy way to change the GW network settings, i.e. the GW IP address. To my knowledge this isn’t possible at the moment. Is it? At least I come across more and more configuration files at both the GW and the Workstation that has 192.168.0.10 hardcoded into it.
Unfortunately, I currently have no overview about all configuration files involved here. I’m thinking about some shell script that one may run - on demand - on both GW and Workstation to alter the GW network settings, i.e. to somehow sed/awk affected (hardcoded) files. At first glance I thought about a build script integration but an OS-integrated script seems to be better here (opinions?) as it’d also allows to alter the download versions of both GW and Workstation.
What do you think? Also, if that’s too tricky (for someone but Patrick who knows every single configuration file in Whonix), what about changing it to GW 172.16.0.10 as of Whonix 9+, Workstation 172.16.0.11 or something even more obscure like 172.16.23.10, respectively 172.16.23.11 by default? You get the idea. From my very own perspective 192.168.0.10, respectively 192.168.0.11 isn’t the most clever choice here considering it’s common use in SOHO routers.
